Here we find the Ethnographic Park Pyramids of Güímar a complex of six step-pyramids which are oriented astronomically to the summer and winter solstices. The pyramids were discovered in 1987 and show great resemblance to those found in Egypt's ancient Mesopotamia, Peru and Mexico.
The origins of the pyramids are still uncertain and subject to discussion among archeologists. In the opinion of the great explorer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl, who was involved in the early researches, they may have been constructed by voyagers who sailed the Atlantic in ancient times and possibly may have established a link with the pre-Columbian civilizations of Central and South America.
